in the wake of those protests. our senior international correspondent arwa damon is in benghazi, libya. >> reporter: the events that unfolded on friday in benghazi most certainly, at least at this point in time, seem to be having a ripple-on effect. to begin with what happened on friday, in the afternoon, pro-democracy demonstrators took to the streets demanding an end to the existence of armed militias, demanding that the government forces, the army and the police, be the only authority on the streets of the country. following that, at night we saw hundreds of individuals storming one of the headquarters of a known militant group in benghazi. after they initially managed to peacefully pretty much take over that location, they then set their sights on a second area. this, however, turned out to be a battalion that is, in fact, endorsed by the government. it did result in some clashes that caused injuries and casualties, and then the army eventually in the early morning hours of the morning, moving in, especially trying to secure massive weapons, depots that did exist there. we arrived

more now from benghazi. >> reporter: the revolution began in benghazi and now it's starting once again in benghazi to evict these extremist militias. he was just telling us is that the people inside, they believe must have heard that the pro-democracy demonstrators were coming because by the time they arrived, they found no one. they were able to go in and take control. we are seeing the pro-democracy people of benghazi literally reclaiming their city from the extremist militias. there was an initial sense of euphoria, people saying that this is the real libya, cleansed of extremists by its own people. but the situation quickly turned sinister. >> we have five left. >> be careful. >> bottom of the road there. >> there. >> over on the left-hand side. >> reporter: there is gun fire. this is the second location. just on the other side of this wall is the second location that we are told is being struck tonight, but contrary to what we witnessed at the first place, here there seems to be something of a gun battle going on. we are hearing sporadic gun fire as well as other small explosions.

. >> that group has denied any involvement but some benghazi citizens apparently want that compound turned over to government troops. eight people, including some members of that radical group have been arrested in connection with the consulate attack. >> now to politics and presidential taxes -- no, we're not talking about the candidates' tax plans or mitt romney's comments on the 47% of americans who pay no federal income taxes. instead we're specifically talking about how much mitt romney paid himself. his campaign released his 2011 f tax return and romney paid almost $2 million in taxes off an income of almost $14 million, a 14.1% rate. so why the low rate? the majority of romney's income came from investments. in fact, all but about half a million of it. here's what the obama campaign had to say afterwards. "mitt romney took advantage of complex loopholes and tax shelters only available to those at the top." >> the romney campaign released a letter with numbers from the last 20 years of taxes, no returns, just a summary. basically it said that the romneys owed taxes for the last 20 years a

community. deb and victor. >> let's talk for a moment about what was said immediately after the benghazi attacks. some statements were made by the u.s. ambassador rice. here's what he told our wolf blitzer. >> i believe this was a failure of foreign policy message and leadership and such a misstatement of facts, as were known at the time and for her to go on all those shows and be misinforming the american people and our allies in countries around the world, to me, somebody has to pay the price for this. too much things to go wrong and everyone forgets about it the next day. i think we have to send a clear message and american ambassador was killed where by all the accumulation of evidence at the time the prezumption had to be it was terrorism. i can see if they wanted to say it's definitively terrorism, but to rule out terrorism and say it was not terrorism at that time was, to me, a terrible mistake to make whether it was intentionally or uninte unintentionally. >> the white house is standing by, rice. everything she said in that interview was cleared by interagency groups based on the

saw hundreds of vilks storming one of the headquarters of a known militant group in benghazi after they initially managed to peacefully take over that location, they then set their sights on a second area. this turned out to be a battalion that is, in fact, endorsed by the government. it did result in some clashes that caused injuries and casualties and then the army eventually in the early morning hours moved in, especially trying to remove massive weapons. we arrived on site and saw some of the heavy weaponry that the army was trying to secured. at one of the brigade headquarters, we saw a number of detainees that people said had been taken into custody in conjunction with the assault of that government-endorsed battalion headquarters. it certainly is a chaotic and volatile situation. many say this is part of the populations being fed up with the government's inability to reign in this tuation, trying to take the situation into their own hands. we were hearing late saturday night two more known militant bases had shut down, this time to the east. they have been monitoring it quit
